SPOKANE - City of Spokane Parks and Recreation in partnership with The Trust for Public Land will host an interactive Open House and Park Celebration in Dutch Jake’s Park to continue the next phase of design for the park. The team is excited to share two park concepts that have been developed based on community input collected between December and March. We encourage the community to join us to discover the opportunities and share your ideas on how we can make Dutch Jake’s Park a safe and fun place for everyone.

The design of the park continues to evolve and we continue to seek community input to identify uses, programs, and future amenities that will meet the neighborhood’s vision for the park. To celebrate the recent improvement in the park, we invite residents to join us to explore the new space with free games, prizes, and breakfast. Park users and families of all ages are welcome.
